Many women who eat well and are aware of their body’s nutrient needs find little or no need to use dietary supplements during pregnancy. However, sometimes pregnancy its self can take a toll on a woman’s body and nutritive supplementation can be advised. Here are some examples of high quality supplements and how and when to use them.
Flora, Floradix, Iron + Herbs Supplement
This herb derived iron supplement is one of my favorites. It works great and has no unpleasant side effects.
Rainbow Light Just Once Prenatal One Multivitamin
This is one of my favorite prenatal vitamins. It is food based (better absorption, less side effects), has everything you need in it, and it’s not too expensive.
